    New stitching irons

    That's one thing i like ( beside the beautiful design) about the 4Z irons : square tops , regular Allen key (or flat screwdriver) for easy change, including the ability of turning the teeth for an inverse stitch. It looks like they use a 440c stainless that's also used in knife blades, surgical instruments , chisels , ball bearings and so on. But then again , you can't them with 20 teeth like KS

    New stitching irons

    I was just looking again on their website for the steel they are using and i found this . I assume it's because the tooth angle has to be set properly too. "Due to technical constraints, it is only possible to replace to replace the blade at head office and you are responsible for roundtrip shipping costs." I just wished it could have been done "at home" and even have few extra teeth included in that price just in case . It looks like i was wrong , the nice wooden box comes only with the $560 titanium gold set . Regardless, still a good value

    Also you get a nice looking wood box...great presentation . It looks like a lot of leather workers love their KSblades tools and at $180 ( or $360 is you want the inverse set too ) still seems like a good deal. The titanium gold looks stunning. What is the steel used for the prongs? I couldn't find any details on their website. I wonder if anybody had to change any of the prongs yet and how easy is it ?

    Just found this guy on Aliexpress and really liked his tools ...similar to KS but better looking in my opinion. It looks like you can use same handle for the Japanese and the European style teeth he offers. The fact that you can go from obverse to reverse just by turning the teeth is a great feature He also has few other different tools , all of them seems to be very well made . I might end up ordering the 3mm set and post a short video of them in action soon as I'll get them Here is the link for his store ...worth checking them out 4z store
  5. Can you post some pictures of those dies too? Thanks !

    First Seat for 2019

    That's a very nice seat !!! I guess forming the metal "frame" on top was stressful part .

    Making a belt out of upholstery leather?

    What about a sleeve made out that upholstery leather for the rubber strap ? The strap can "free float" inside that sleeve... looks and the snugness...

    31-20 treadle

    Roller feet are available for this machine and they work pretty good. I installed one on my 31-15 singer and i can sew through up to 6 oz getting a nice stitch too. You can also find videos on YouTube showing you how to install it too

    Tandy's New Clicker Press

    I tried the press using some of my dies ...few billfold wallet dies along with the pockets , card holders , key chain, watch straps dies , and it work just fine .Using a larger cutting board after removing the two small pins on the back of the bed will probably allow larger dies too. I was hoping for a swing arm too
